Black-eared Kite near Akan on Hokkaido, Japan.
If you look well you can see that the Kite has a just captured fish in its talons.
The eye of the fish is on the right hand side.

Although many authorities still treat it as a race of Black Kite (Milvus migrans), the Asian form of Black Kite is often now regarded as a different species, Black-eared Kite (Milvus lineatus).

Best wishes,
